Discover luminous fireflies buzzing about the forest. Collect them with a tap of your finger and fill up your jar. You might even catch the rest of all the forest’s creatures: the brilliant Luna Moth. Who knows what else you might collect? Some fireflies are hard to catch and others will try to escape. Spend some time exploring the forest and taking in the beautiful landscape. Try looking backwards, up, down, all around! This app is all about open play and having fun with your newfound firefly friends.


Moonbeeps are apps created for kids of all ages. Each app is designed to create fun, imaginative play in and out of your mobile device. We promise each app will feature beautiful artwork, open play and never include in-app purchases or third party advertising. Each app is lovingly created by Moonbot Studios, which previously released landmark kids apps including, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, hailed as “the future of kids eBooks” by The Atlantic, as well as, The Numberlys, described as “storytelling, games and education rolled into one intriguing blend” by The Guardian.
